On March 23rd, Merge will release In the Court of the Wrestling Let’s, the debut full-length from British rock stars Let’s Wrestle.
Let’s Wrestle met years ago and bonded over meat and records. After a while, a band was formed and soon the world shall be conquered. Let’s Wrestle have influences as vast as Black Flag, Buddy Holly, Faust, and Edith Piaf, but are ultimately trying to be as raw as possible. They try to write songs that make your soul crumble as well as making you smile, sing along and clap your hands.
Please enjoy a download of “ We are the Men You’ll Grow to Love Soon” from In the Court of the Wrestling Let’s. Singer Wesley Patrick Gonzalez describes this song as “Let’s Wrestle’s Barmitzvah from whence they turned from punk pre-teens into men who rock.”
Let’s Wrestle Are Wesley Patrick Gonzalez (Vocals and Guitar), Mike Lightning (Bass and Vocals) and Darkus Bishop (Drums)
As the January 19th release of Spoon’s eagerly anticipated new album, Transference, grows near, Spoon has announced the itinerary of its 2010 North American tour. The dates kick off with a March 17th headlining appearance at Stubb’s in Austin as part of the annual South by Southwest conference, and include the band’s first ever headline engagement at New York’s Radio City Music Hall.
Transference, the seventh Spoon album and the first produced by the band itself, began streaming in its entirety today as an NPR First Listen. Also, Spoon will commemorate Transference’s release with a January 19 appearance on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.
